Hand-cut & multi-layered original photograph of old cupboard doors in Santa Fe, New Mexico at a place called “La Puerta.” The textures invite a tactile response while the beautiful combination of colors bathes the viewers eyes.
What makes my photography unique is that all photographs are executed in a technique I describe as 3D PhotoSculptures.
First, the images are printed at least two or three times. Then, the photographs are hand-cut, layered and glued back together again to create depth.
My photography has been called "painterly" in that it transcends the limitations of regular photography through the composition of color, texture, shape and design of objects in their natural state. Some images have been described as "urban landscapes which transform what might be viewed as the dullest subjects imaginable -- old walls -- into elegant deductive composition". I have been described as having a "sensitive eye for abstract beauty in mundane places, and it has been noted that the use of sumptuous, penetrating color turns the smallest images into urban spice boxes". My work has also been referred to as “trompe l'oeil” or in English, "trick of the eye."
